GHS Innovation Lab

GHS Innovation Lab | Montana State Standards | Scoop.it
Learning that is relevant. Not to us as teachers, but to the individual student. At HSRA it was based on the individual student passions. For our students and others in many project based learning programs, the project is focused around a theme in which content would work as the framework, but the product and whatever else is needed to reach that product is student choice, and they own it. It gives them not only a chance to find a passion, but more importantly to expand their horizons and give them a chance to reach outside of their comfort zones.

Over the past two years, Digital Promise has been building an ecosystem of micro-credentials to provide competency-based recognition for the skills educators develop throughout their careers in both formal and informal contexts.

4 Things Innovative Schools Have In Common -

4 Things Innovative Schools Have In Common - | Montana State Standards | Scoop.it
A recent list of 13 innovative schools is interesting because it is so diverse.

Clearly innovation and creativity is not one dimensional. Some of the schools on the list are considered innovative because of the way they use their learning spaces, whilst others are vaunted because of their progressive pedagogical approaches. There is a common issue with many lists however, and it is that the inclusions are there because of the opinions of an individual or small group.
